In Infants with Egg or Milk Allergy, Can Future Peanut Allergy Be Predicted? – 2
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. A recent, ongoing observational study has enrolled more than 500 infants between 3 and 15 months old. Dr. Marshall Plaut at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases explains how infants were enrolled.
Plaut: There were two criteria for entry into the study either they had a known allergy to milk and/or egg, or they had a positive allergy test for milk or egg, but they also had moderate or severe eczema or atopic dermatitis.
Narrator: Study findings suggest that infants with egg or milk allergy are at risk for developing peanut allergy. For details, visit www.niaid.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
